Animation that I love:
The Nutcracker Prince(1990)
It tells the story about Soren, a barn owl, who, along with his brother Kludd, gets kidnapped by the owls and brought to the St. Aegolius academy of orphaned owls where they become moon blinked and later wake up brainwashed. He befriends another owl named Gylfie in which she helps Soren escape, leaving Kludd to the dark side and trying to find the Guardians of Ga-Hoole. Along the way, they befriend two other owls named Digger and Twilight as they journey to the city of Ga-Hoole to aid the guardians in an epic battle against the Pure Ones.
Now for my opinion. I do have one problem: I didn't see the 3D version of this movie because it was kind of cheap, but when I saw it in 2D, I was completely blown away by a lot of good things.
The CGI animation and art industry was very amazing to look at, the voice acting was terrific, the action sequences were very good, the dark tone and visuals were awesome, the music score was epic, and the storyline was well-paced.
Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga-Hoole has great animation, solid voice acting, and great action and its IMO one of the best movies ever made.
While Po, now a Dragon Warrior, continues to live his life with the Furious Five and his father, a new villain named Lord Shen uses a powerful weapon that could destroy kung fu and plans to somehow rule the world. With the help of the Furious Five and Master Shifu, Po must somehow solve the mystery of his origins in order to defeat Lord Shen.
Now, I already now what the plot was about and so do you guys. Now for my opinion. While the original had compelling characters, great action scenes, and the laugh-out-loud comedy, this one captures all of the magic and mixes them with amazing storytelling As the rest of the movie, everything turned out great. Jack Black was funnier than ever, The acting was superb, the action scenes were greater than ever, the characters were amazing and were well-developed, the animation was both magnificent and awe-freaking-some, the china settings were very amazing in the methods of storytelling, and the moments were dark and very cool in my opinion and the storyline was very touching to begin with.
What really got me thrilled was the main villain Lord Shen. He was very deadly and Gary Oldman does a great job at voicing him and I like the way he actually feels about his pride. I have no choice to put him as my favorite villain next to Tai Lung.
The other aspect that also got me thrilled was the friendship between Po and Master Tigress and they were fully developed and I liked the touching moment in which Po learns about his origins that gives him the power to learn the Inner Peace Technique (SPOILER ALERT!)
Kung Fu Panda 2 is an excellent follow up to a great movie and will go down as one of my favorite Dreamworks Animated movies of all time. As long as it has the same cast, I can't wait for the rest of the Kung Fu Panda movies.
I was speechless when I first saw it in theaters last summer and I loved every minute of it.
The action and flight sequences in some of the scenes were amazingly intense and had a lot of epicness to it.
The CGI animation, art design, and characters were absolutely magnificent and were well put together.
It teaches a good message for the kids and audiences.
The music score from John Powell was very memorable and had a lot of emotion to it.
The acting was brilliant. Jay Baruchel was excellent as Hiccup, Gerard Butler was great at Stoick, and the rest of the actors did very well.
How To Train Your Dragon is one Dreamworks Animation's greatest films and one of the best movies of 2010. Thumbs up from me.
